many of you saw my interview with pearce morgan on cnn. what he does, his tactic has always been to go up there and then say that whoever opposes him on gun policy, he did this to newt gingrich last night, whoever opposes him on gun policy, it's because they don't give a damn about the dead kids in sandy hook. it is a vile, reprehensible, disgusting tactic. but it really is a microcosm of what the left does on a regular basis. i can't remember the last time that the left didn't use this tactic. when president obama trots out 7 yielders to stand -- 7-year-olds to stand behind him as he's announcing gun control legislation, and then he puts on the white house web site videos of these same 7-year-olds reading letters to the president clearly written by their parents, and i'm unaware of the point in which 7-year-olds became the best guide to solving these problems in the country. we are supposed to make policy like a 7-year-old would. so when you have a little girl in a red dress shouting into the camera no guns, no guns as president obama does, we are supposed to take that at face value.

to take them back. if you can imagine, not a single one on cnn a single white on land. we had to find the different places for the sailors and the people. but i think the main thing -- well, the main thing at that time was listening to these people because they wanted to talk. there were young men. they had no idea. and they've wanted to talk about their families. the one to talk about the mother's spirit and was thinking the other night, i don't think any of them ever talked about the future because they were unsure what the future was. i know, i sat for hours and hours talking to the hangman, many of whom, most of whom were lost about life and what it meant and what they wished they had appreciated more. so i really think that that was part of the world in those days, just visiting, listening to the people. we were having a hard time doing and so the queen -- you know her as the queen mum, queen elizabeth's mother came to plymouth. i'm sure she came. but she came on our but. and so that she could make us look more legitimate, more excepted as a part of the navy. very good effort to

of swiss cheese and as the cnn sensation, run making fun of me because we were changing for the highest standard. it became the story of government run amok. anyhow, it is very important because it helps with the slicing machines and the swiss cheese industry. i'm so proud of that one. anyhow, the standards are things we work in collaboration with industry and so we are always anxious for industry to come up with innovations in standards that we help oversee. so that is a partnership, though we are always working on. >> i would just add, in order for partnerships to work, there has to be a constructive conversation and unfortunately, all too often, folks will be encouraging conflict instead of collaboration. and so, yesterday i had a great conversation with leaders in the organic world who are basically making the case that her can ask are different than general commodities. and because they are different, the systems we have the usda, where we try to apply insurance regulatory systems may not recognize the uniqueness of her can ask and that we really need to be thinking differently in
